  1. With as many options as there are out there for data storage, what makes this one the superior choice? I'm not actually familiar with the company itself, but I am intrigued by the idea of 36 drives being attached in one unit. And what's the cost of something like this?

  2. Andrew, the basic idea is to have more room for attaching hard drive which make a lot more of space. other manufacturer may have a better product. and it cost a lot of bucks for sure :)
